Choose vibrant and seasonal organic ingredients
Start by selecting a variety of fresh, seasonal organic fruits and vegetables. Not only does this ensure the best flavour, but it also adds a burst of colour to your platter. Our organic black rice crackers, dried apricots and kalamata olives add to a visually striking arrangement.
Balance textures and flavours
Achieve a well-rounded platter by combining different textures and flavours. Include crisp veggies, juicy fruits, creamy cheeses, and crunchy nuts. This diversity not only enhances the visual appeal but also offers a delightful tasting experience.
Layering and arrangement
Pay attention to the arrangement of your ingredients. Consider creating layers or sections on the platter to add depth and dimension. Place larger items like whole fruits or artisanal cheeses as focal points and fill in the gaps with smaller items like our organic dried cranberries or tamari almonds.
Incorporate fresh herbs for aesthetic appeal
Elevate the aesthetic appeal of your platter by incorporating fresh herbs. Not only do they add a pop of green, but they also bring a fragrant and aromatic element to the arrangement. Popular choices include basil, mint, or edible flowers.
Play with shapes and sizes
Experiment with cutting your organic ingredients into different shapes and sizes. Sliced cucumbers, halved cherry tomatoes, and cubed cheeses can add visual interest. Don't be afraid to get creative with the presentation to make your platter stand out.
Include DIY dips and spreads
Enhance the flavour profile of your platter by including organic dips and spreads made by you! A homemade roasted beetroot hummus, cashew cheese or tzatziki can complement the freshness of the organic ingredients while adding an interactive element for your guests.
Opt for sustainable serving ware
Complete the eco-friendly theme by choosing sustainable serving ware. Bamboo, wooden platters, or recycled materials not only align with the organic theme but also contribute to a more environmentally conscious presentation.
